I have a special issue here I think.
A few weeks ago I got the error when my WD Elements Play couldn’t detect the internal hard drive. It didn’t work with my PC or my TV, I thought it was dead. Today I worked a bit on it and I managed to get it running on my computer, I can access it like a normal hard drive right now.
Well thats the issue, it doesn’t connect to my computer as an external / portable storage media. Also when I connect it to my TV it shows the same old error message that it Cannot detect the internal hard drive. I figured something is wrong with the software/firmware, considering it does indeed work as a storage device but it cannot run on its own with my TV. So basicly my device works at 50%
I have tried to update the firmware with the usb-stick method when it’s connected to my TV, but it doesn’t work because the HDD ain’t available obviously.
Any idea how I can fix this? Is formatting an option?
I’m a bit afraid I might be pushed back to square 1 if I do anything so I just leave it here until I get some reply
If anyone wonders how I managed to access it please ask and I’ll reply in this thread, I’m on my way out really in a hurry lol.
